Imam Khamenei: US Is Personification of Evil, Violence
By Staff, Agencies
Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei called the US “the embodiment of evil and violence” whose existence relies on encroachment on other countries' sovereignty.
“The US regime is the embodiment of evil and violence; a crisis-maker and a warmonger,” Imam Khamenei said in a Friday meeting with a group of Iranian Air Force commanders and personnel in Tehran.
“The US regime’s existence has always … depended on encroachment aimed at securing its own interests,” he said, adding the Iranian nation will keep chanting "Death to America" as long as the United States remains evil.
“The US is the embodiment of evil, but still complains why you chant ‘Death to America’,” the Imam said, referring to US President Donald Trump's remarks about Iran in his State of the Union address Tuesday.
“First of all, I should tell the American officials: Death to America means death to Trump, John Bolton, and Pompeo. It means death to American rulers who are currently these individuals,” Imam Khamenei said.
“Death to America means ‘death’ to you, the few people ruling the country; we don’t mean the American nation,” the Imam said.
“Secondly, the Iranian nation will continue to chant the ‘Death to America’ slogan as long as the US remains evil and wicked,” he added.
